JP is the successful owner-operator of sKids Breakfast Club, After School Care, and Holiday Programmes at both Devonport and Grey Lynn School. With a background in the HR & Legal professions, JP jumped at the chance to be inspired daily by children and the dynamic sKids team in 2013.
Our team have been police-vetted and rigorously interviewed by JP and the children. Our training includes induction, behavioural management and child protection. We are also certified first-aiders and trained in water safety.
Thrive and Grow
The vision for our programme is “Tomorrow’s leaders today”. It is a value driven organisation where we grow awesome Kiwi kids.
We are very privileged that many of our children spent the best times of their days with us and we form a significant part of their childhood.
It is therefore our duties to ensure they are provided with plentiful of opportunities to learn and grow. This falls on our team of dedicated managers and programme assistants. We take our roles seriously. We provide healthy and yummy breakfast and afternoon snacks which kids enjoy. This way if we fill their bellies they are ready for what we have in store for them.
Planning and engaging them in fun and exciting themes and activities that children will enjoy and grow important life skills. Our weekly activities will feature a range of arts and craft, drama, sports, food technologies. We also engage external providers in to facilitate speciality programme such as circus school, robotics, pet care etc. We help them with homework so that parents can spend quality family time together before bed. This helps us build trusting relationship with parents so that we can keep each other in the loop about the children.
Best of all, we are based at Devonport Primary where we have access its many facilities such as: swimming pool, sports equipment, the library, computer lab, forest and playgrounds!
